Wills and Probate

At O’Connor O’Dea Solicitors we offer a comprehensive, confidential approach in advising on and drafting all types of Wills.


We understand the importance of fulfilling the wishes of an individual in taking their instructions and in drafting their Will. When drafting a Will an important consideration is Estate Planning. It is critical that any person making a Will is made aware of the prevailing tax thresholds and Capital Acquisitions Tax implications.  Providing for Trusts, Continuation of Businesses, Protection of Assets and the Guardianship of Children is also an area that should be addressed early.


At O’Connor O’Dea Solicitors we offer a full probate service in Extracting Grants of Probate and Administration including advice to nominated Executors.


We are aware that dealing with a loved one’s estate is not always easy but we are always available to assist with issues sensitively and swiftly. Some areas we advise on are

  • Drafting Wills and Trusts;
  • Estate Planning and Advice on Tax Implications;
  • Administering Estates of deceased persons;
  • Disputes in relation to Succession;
  • Section 117 Applications;
  • Spouses rights;

In the event that a person dies without leaving a Will they are said to have died “Intestate”. We can offer guidance, assistance and support in dealing with estates of this kind to avoid any unforeseen difficulties or disputes later on.


We handle the practicalities of dealing with all the relevant institutions such as the probate office, banks, pension providers, revenue commissioners and insurance companies so that a Testators wishes can be fulfilled.
At O’Connor O’Dea Solicitors we can provide practical and professional expertise in dealing with both contentious and non-contentious issues regarding probate and the distribution of a deceased assets.
